Read Time:44 Second

It’s been two years since the Season 5 finale of “Better Call Saul,” leaving fans wondering what’s in store for the beloved crooked lawyer.

As Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) opens shop as Saul Goodman, Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn) hints at her own breaking bad moment, with Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian) in her crosshairs. Meanwhile, Nacho Varga (Michael Mando) is on the run after playing a part in Gus Fring’s (Giancarlo Esposito) assassination attempt on Lalo Salamanca (Tony Dalton). Little do they know, Lalo lives to see another day after picking off Gus’ hitmen one by one in Terminator-like fashion. Meanwhile, a war is brewing between Gus and the Salamancas, with the fates of Kim and Nacho — both absent from the future events of “Breaking Bad” — looming ahead.

All seven episodes of Ozark: Season Four, Part One are available now on Netflix.

Nicolas Cage is hard to comprehend. There are times when he makes just the most god awful movies that are nothing more than a way to pay the bills such as Left Behind. Other times, he makes intense character pieces such as Pig. He didn’t utter a word in Willie’s […]

Netflix lags behind HBO when it comes to producing high-quality shows, but the gap is getting smaller. Look at Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Black Mirror, The Crown, The Queen’s Gambit, The Last Dance, etc. Alas, I’d take Peaky Blinders over any other Netflix hit. One of the great British dramas, Peaky Blinders alternates between […]

Messy sketchy satire from France “Bloody Oranges”

A satire of interconnected vignettes — sketches — tied together in a loopy, bloody-minded State of France farce of a story, “Bloody Oranges” won’t be to most tastes. Discerning its meaning and what the filmmaker and his uninhibited, Comedie Francaise-spangled cast had it mind for their “targets” isn’t always obvious. But if you’re down for […]

This is cinema. I’ve always wanted to begin a review with those three words. It just never felt suitable; I needed that special little “this is it!” moment.

While the lucrative Marvel Cinematic Universe gets most of the attention when it comes to the popular superhero genre, it’s hard to find a more anticipated movie than “The Batman”. The Caped Crusader certainly isn’t new to the big screen. First there was the Burton/Schumacher films that began in 1989. Then there was Christopher Nolan’s […]

‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ (2022) Review: “Netflix Franchise Massacre”

Read Time:20 Second

It’s impossible to recreate the magic of 1974’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Shot on a shoestring budget in Texas heat, pervasive rotten smells, and the like, many consider it to be the scariest film ever made, an assessment I agree with. As with any success, sequels followed. And remakes. And prequels. Prequels ignored sequels, sequels […]
